Billboard highly complimented G-Dragon.
On September 4th (local date), Billboard made a report about G-Dragon's 2nd solo album, 'COUP D'ETAT', and wrote, ' this East meets West collabo is dark and subtly aggressive'.
They also wrote, "For the first single, "COUP D’ETAT," G-Dragon teamed up with American DJs Diplo and Baauer to deliver braggadocio about starting, "a new revolution."
They went on, "He's present throughout the slow-tempo track with a nasal, monotonous voice over a heavy trap-inflected beat, squelching synths and a hint of high-hat fill. The lyrics, penned by GD himself, are a confident manifesto as he raps and sings in Korean."
Netizens who saw the report made comments, such as "G-Dragon deserves it", "He is really amazing", "G-Dragon is always the best", and "He is showing a huge power recently."
